HRH Hereditary Prince Peter was deeply moved by the extent of devastation but also very proud of the citizens of Obrenovac and rescue teams he met in the city.

Their Royal Highnesses went through all parts of Obrenovac and spoke to many people there about what they need the most. They spoke with rescuers from the German organisation “Tierrettung” that came to Serbia as volunteers to help in rescuing animals and pets, after an appeal of Sanja Pavicevic from Belgrade who organized a campaign on social networks for emergency aid to Serbia.
